Cultural Conference "The refuges of today", by Gaston Müller Saint-Gervais-les-Bains

Saint-Gervais-les-Bains (74170)

The refuges, which are inseparable from our mountains, are essential places for mountaineers. Initially makeshift shelters, they eventually developed with the growth of tourism to accommodate a maximum number of climbers in the best possible conditions. The architects of these spaces have to be imaginative in order to design them in the best possible way, both inside and outside, and to take into account the environmental conditions in which they are set up.

This conference is linked to the exhibition Alpine Refuges. From makeshift shelters to high-altitude tourism, initiated by the Musée dauphinois in Grenoble and visible at the Maison forte de Hautetour until 30 September 2023.


Free of charge.
